Hi Bill :)

where do I start? I guess I am a little in shock, and yes very much saddened at what the last few days have been like, and the response you have received from some people on forum and in GROK. It's funny... there's a thread a little below this one that has my name on it, that makes me feel like I am an important memeber of this forum, and someone whose opinion can be respected. And yet when I stated that you were a friend of mine, that I invited you to come GROk with us, and that I WAS CERTAIN that you were not smi2les, that was not enough.
I'm sorry for that. :(

we have known each other from deadhook now for well over a year. You know me well enough to know that I would not keep coming to forum, or keep grokking weekend after weekend if there weren't really kind, sincere, caring men behind the cute little screen names. I keep coming because there are genuine friends here. People that I honestly care about, and who honestly care about me. Those friends that matter will welcome you. :)

When I first arrived here I had to learn the hard way that the LMA wasn't deadhook, with a built in 'security system'. I was told to 'get a tougher skin'... to 'not let a few apples spoil the bunch'... to ignore. It's been about 8 months or so now since I first arrived, and I have to be honest with you.... while my posts now are mainly 'social'... I am so very glad I stayed and didn't give up. I hope you won't give up either. The dozen or more true friends that I have here, really could use another friend like you. and that's the honest truth!

All my love, Gina :)

Thanks Gina. You were the one that invited me back and I think I'm going to like being here. And we can all use some new friends once in a while!

I've actually got pretty tough skin. I can take a lot from other people. But when it is my mistake that causes trouble, I feel a real need to make amends. My original faux pas involved dire and Cliff. I've made my peace with dire. I will now enjoy his company here on the board, and in future groks. Cliff may not be so easy to reach. He doesn't seem to be quite as big a "mush" as dire.....kidding dire, just kidding.



The others that have reacted with negativity can either take me at my word and accept me "into the fold", or not. After all, as high flow said, "This is a public place."

and high flow thanks bother!

Hey Gina, this is beginning to remind me of my "brotherhood thread" at Deadhook. And, that's not a bad thing!

Man, this is just like the local playground.....when you first walk-up...the other kids look at you funny. Maybe you even scuffle w/ some of the more fearful kids.....but after a while, you become one of the familiar neighborhood faces.

I won't push you off the monkey-bars or hog the slide....let's play catch. AND, enough of us already have yer back, so you won't be "IT" whenever we play hide-and-seek!

All that said.....I think Dancin has cooties....I KNOW Dire does.....hehe!
